Flatware in Love: Or, How to Make an Afternoon Disappear

After seeing David Pogue's video on creating stop-motion movies using free software, I got a bee in my bonnet and wanted to make one. So, I bought a cheap webcam (Microsoft LifeCam VX-1000) found the software (Stop Motion Pro v5), downloaded their trial version, and made a little film about silverware at odds with each other. I used Audacity for the sound and Microsoft's Movie Maker to finish it off. I then loaded it onto YouTube. It's silly, and it has the watermark of the trial version, so I'll have to try it again with a bit more preparation. It's here.

Is it just me, or was that a PG-13 video? I enjoyed it--cool project! :-)

This was actually the expurgated version. Some forks are such floozies.

I think the USD lit conference would be a great experience for me. I hope that I can go; nay, I will go! I have been playing with this stop motion thing too. It is very cool! I am trying to think of something to do for my final Twain project.
